CCUNESCO NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR ITS YOUTH ADVISORY GROUP (YAG)!
The Canadian Commission for UNESCO (CCUNESCO) is seeking new members to join its Youth Advisory Group from the provinces of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Saskatchewan, and the Northern Territories. If you are between the ages of 18-30, are actively engaged in your community and connect with UNESCO’s mission and vision, submit your application now!
Members of our Youth Advisory Group help identify the issues and concerns of youth in their communities, provide recommendations, and help us develop new local initiatives and activities. They also take part in UNESCO-related events, such as the annual general meeting and International Youth Forum, and act as liaisons between their organizations and networks and the Commission. They help develop and support initiatives that relate to UNESCO’s work. Ultimately, group members support one another through a network that unites young people with similar interests and convictions.
If interested, please submit your application form along with your CV before July 31, 2015 to firstname.lastname@example.org. Priority will be given to youth already connected to CCUNESCO members or programs (i.e. UNESCO Associated Schools, UNESCO World Heritage Site, Biosphere Reserves, the Canadian Coalition of Municipalities Against Racism & Discrimination- CCMARD, UNESCO Chairs, etc.)

Cornwall is a young, vibrant growing Town with many things to offer. The Town is located on the Trans Canada Highway, west of Charlottetown. It is bordered by the North River to the east and the West River to the south and west. Cornwall’s location along the Province’s main transportation route between the Confederation Bridge and the Capital City gives it advantages for many types of economic activity including residential development, retailing, tourism, warehousing and light manufacturing. Cornwall is located within a 30 to 90 minute drive of all major points of access to and from the Island. Check out our locator map on this site for a visual description.
In 2011, the Town of Cornwall had a population of 5,162, representing a percentage change of 10.4% from 2006. This compares to the national average growth of 5.9%.
Come and experience the warm and friendly hospitality that our Town has to offer. Cornwall has a variety of restaurants and accommodations for all visitor’s needs.

It is an honour to have been elected as your Mayor, and I look forward to working with Council and residents over the next four years to ensure our Town is a great place to live.
I invite you to take the time to view the website for more information on all that the Town has to offer. Each Department has developed an overview on what their responsibilities are, and we keep an open door policy, so please don’t hesitate to contact myself or the staff at Town Hall with any questions or concerns.
